June 1, 2011 3:19 PM by Barbara Mercer
In case you haven’t heard, unless you don’t have insurance through an employer that offsets the cost, it can be very expensive (and even then, it can be pricey). For people requiring treatments or medications for chronic conditions, expenses can quickly Read More...

Not So Sweet?
May 3, 2011 4:21 PM by Candy Goulette
Last year, through a combination of hard work and no food, I was able to lose 60 pounds. I was lighter than I had been in years and felt great. I got rid of all my “fat” clothes and got some new duds more fitting for the, well, more fit me. Unfortunately, Read More...

Weighty Issues
March 1, 2011 2:35 PM by Friedman Diana

Take It All Off, Part 2
August 11, 2009 2:12 PM by Valerie Newitt
Having just chewed (exactly 25 chews per bite) one half of a green bell pepper and one half of a red bell pepper, I have made a discovery. They don't taste the same. Blindfolded I can tell one from the other. I'm not so sure I could have made that claim Read More...
